Trina Turk – Pre Spring Summer 2016 Ready To Wear
To say Trina Turk has a knack for color is an understatement. She presented her new Resort collection (and her husband Jonathan’s line for men, Mr Turk) in a sunny new showroom overlooking Bryant Park, complete with canary yellow walls. The collection was just as cheery: Orange, neon pink, and electric violet popped on their own but were usually mixed together. “We’re known for our color and prints, but for Resort we really just wanted to go for it,” Turk said. Pulling inspiration from Baja California, she played with new textures, like a nubby jacquard that felt like a beach blanket. There were also lots of beaded caftans, which Turk envisioned her L.A. customers wearing to a summer cocktail party. But there was little shortage of pieces that would work on both coasts, like a pair of army green culottes and a Baja-style striped hoodie. Come November, you could throw it over a bikini in Malibu or layer it with a turtleneck and jeans here in New York.
